Reinterpreting Courrèges’s space age ’60s aesthetic without running the risk of being repetitive and boring your clientele; this was the challenge for Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, who seem to have come out on top thanks to teaming ‘simple, linear clothes + technology’. After the opening three second-skin knitted jumpsuits with diamond cut-outs came a series of outerwear, including coats with little metal buttons that warmed the coat through a mobile phone–enabled power source. Not bad. Then there were lots of cropped biker jackets and patent leather mini-skirts worn with very existential ribbed crew necks and turtlenecks, masculine suits in micro houndstooth, little tunics with more of those diamond cut-outs and other dresses with a double studded belt, which also perhaps concealed more tech secrets.
